Regional Pastors

The primary focus of the regional pastor is to support fellow pastors. This ministry includes interactions at classis meetings, group meetings, telephone calls, e-mails, and visits (coffee, meals, etc.).  The concern is to stay in contact with each other. It also includes reaching out in crisis situations as well as maintaining contact in normal circumstances. Regional Pastors are sensitive to signs of need such as isolation, stress, reactivity, and transitions (e.g. changes in family, health, ministry). They strive to respond strategically to identified needs by coaching toward collegial relationships, self care, and developing support structures such as personnel committees, pastor relations committees, connections with key lay persons.
